Starting on Friday, April 29, experience a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before. Made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the film features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet — and the effects humanity has had on it over time — captured by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). From space, Earth blazes at night with the electric intensity of human expansion — a direct visualization of our changing world. But it is within our power to protect the planet. As we continue to explore and gain knowledge of our galaxy, we also develop a deeper connection to the place we all call home. From IMAX Entertainment and Toni Myers — the acclaimed filmmaker behind celebrated IMAX® documentaries Blue Planet, Hubble 3D, and Space Station 3D — A Beautiful Planet presents an awe-inspiring glimpse of Earth and a hopeful look into the future of humanity.
“A Beautiful Planet 3D” will play daily for three months. For more information and showtimes, visit www.ChallengerTLH.com.

Now, captured with IMAX® 3D cameras and shown in full glory on the world’s largest screens, National Parks Adventure 3D, narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, celebrates the majesty of these treasured landscapes.
